The strongest evidence for the effectiveness of Extracorporeal Shockwave therapy is in the treatment of tendinopathies. Shockwave stimulates the natural healing processes and has a regenerative and tissue repairing effect. Pain will be released, motor function will increase and calcifications can be reduced.
Most common tendinopathies to be treated with radial shockwave, are Achilles, Infrapatellar, Supraspinatus and lateral elbow pain.
ESWT stimulates bone healing when applying low energy. Great results can be achieved when treating in combination with the related triggerpoints and muscles.
The most common bone pathologies are Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome and Greater Trochanter Pain.
Connective tissue includes several types of fibrous tissue. ESWT generates positive stimulatory effects in the regeneration of this tissue, collagen synthesis and the growth of new cells and blood vessels.
Plantar Fasciopathy, Trigger finger, scar tissue are all well-known applications for radial Shockwave therapy.
Shockwave therapy is effective in pain reduction and functional improvement in Myofascial Pain Syndrome. In case of more acute muscle problems, ESWT will support the prevention and a quicker recovery of Delayed Muscle Soreness. Muscle strength will be enhanced and muscle tone decreased.
Muscle treatment of Triggerpoints, muscle soreness and muscle hypertonia.
Recent developments in ESWT are showing great interest and positive results in the treatment of peripheral nerve regeneration, like in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It has already been proven that shockwave increases muscle weight, reduces muscle atrophy, stimulates regeneration and therefor increases functional activity.
Muscle treatment with radial Shockwave of spasticity, both in post hemiplegia adults and children affected with cerebral palsy, are generally accepted to be successful.
